AAKP’s Pediatric Kidney Pals

Welcome parents and caregivers!

Chronic illness of any kind in children is very difficult for both parents and children. This section on our website is dedicated to helping you and your child find support and learn about pediatric and adolescent kidney disease.



All AAKP members have the opportunity to sign-up for our  bi-monthly e-newsletter, AAKP's Pediatric Kidney Pals!  The e-newsletter contains AAKP news, updates on legislative information in the kidney community affecting patients/families, current articles and issues for pediatric and adolescent kidney patients, human interest stories, supportive articles and resources for parents and family members, kidney-friendly recipes approved by little eaters and much more!
